Sloan and Hsieh successfully blend economic theory and empirical evidence without ignoring health care policy, institutions, or history. Rarely is such a comprehensive text so clear and accessible. -- Martin Saavedra, Assistant Professor of Economics, Oberlin College With an updated, polished, and broadened second edition, Sloan and Hsieh's Health Economics is elevated to the status of a classic text in health economics. Every chapter is solidly grounded in economic analysis, accessible to those fresh to economics, and a trustworthy guide for those interested in more advanced studies. -- Thomas McGuire, Professor of Health Economics, Department of Health Care Policy, Harvard Medical School
